Open Access Food Science and Technology Journals

at Taylor & Francis

We feel strongly about representing a broad range of topics in the food science research we publish. With one preliminary glance at our portfolio of journals, you can find articles on genomic modification of crops and food, nutrition, food biotechnology, food properties, food additives and contaminants, and culinary science.

Our expert editors and editorial board members are highly regarded faculty members of major universities and research centers throughout the world who are dedicated to obtaining papers that reflect cutting edge research and the latest innovations in the commercial realm. However, the one element that truly propels these journals is open access.

Open access means rapid publication, and increased visibility and discoverability. This research is available to anyone, around the world. For our authors, greater visibility can result in increased readership and citations, and a chance to make an impact beyond their field. Open access research informs policymakers, media, and more.

Our publishing staff work diligently to ensure rigorous peer review and high production quality for these manuscripts to ensure that the seamless process we offer our authors results in the most accurate and enlightening journals for our readers. We welcome you to explore these journals and discover what Taylor & Francis can do for you, your research, and the global community.

GM Crops & Food

Q1 in Plant Sciences and Q2 in Biotechnology & Applied Microbiology

Biotechnology in Agriculture and the Food Chain

GM Crops & Food aims to publish high quality research papers, reviews, and commentaries on a wide range of topics involving genetically modified (GM) crops in agriculture and genetically modified food. The journal provides a platform for research papers addressing fundamental questions in the development, testing, and application of transgenic crops. The journal further covers topics relating to socio-economic issues, commercialization, trade and societal issues. GM Crops & Food aims to provide an international forum on all issues related to GM crops, especially toward meaningful communication between scientists and policy-makers.




International Journal of Fruit Science

Now Fully Open Access

The International Journal of Fruit Science disseminates results of current research that are immediately applicable to the grower, extension agent, and educator in a useful, legitimate, and scientific format.

The focus of the journal is on new technologies and innovative approaches to the management and marketing of all types of fruits. It provides practical and fundamental information necessary for the superior growth and quality of fruit crops. This journal examines fruit growing from a wide range of aspects, including:

  • Genetics and breeding
  • Pruning and training
  • Entomology, plant pathology, and weed science
  • Physiology and cultural practices
  • Marketing and economics
  • Fruit production, harvesting, and post-harvest




International Journal of Food Properties

Fully Open Access

The International Journal of Food Properties is a peer reviewed, fully open access journal dedicated to bringing together all research discussing the properties of food.

The journal is essential reading for food scientists, technologists, and engineers; and publishes original research, narrative reviews, book reviews, letters to the editor, and conference papers.



CyTA Journal of Food

Fully Open Access

The official journal of the Sociedad Mexicana de Nutrición y Tecnología de Alimentos (SOMENTA), Journal of Food publishes research on a wide range of subjects which are essential to the food scientist and technologist.

Topics include chemical analysis of food; additives and toxins in food; sensory, nutritional and physiological aspects of food; and food microbiology and biotechnology.



Cogent Food and Agriculture

Fully Open Access

Cogent Food & Agriculture, part of the Taylor & Francis Group, is a multidisciplinary open access journal, publishing scientifically sound peer-reviewed research, including replication studies, in food, nutrition, veterinary and agricultural sciences. The journal provides a fast, flexible and reliable option for open access publishing, helping authors share their work across disciplines and with a global audience.

Our editors, each a specialist in their subject area, assess manuscripts objectively and fairly and provide quality, constructive and timely peer review. Rather than accepting manuscripts based on their level of importance or impact, editors assess manuscripts objectively, accepting valid, scientific research with sound rigorous methodology. Article-level metrics let the research speak for itself.



Food and Agricultural Immunology

Fully Open Access

Food and Agricultural Immunology is an international open access journal publishing original immunological research with applications in food, agricultural, environmental and veterinary science.

Submissions describing the use of immunological techniques and methods are particularly welcomed. The journal aims to expand our understanding of the interactions at the interface of food and immune systems.
